apparently you have never tried posting a link or you would know that yahoo usually blocks them but i suspect that, even if i had gotten it through, you would have asked me to read it to you and give interpretations of the bigger words
you are but another example of the amazingly indignant and insulting responses a factual post receives on this message board from low information pompom pumpers whose diligence is so shallow as to not even include the 'headlines' entries for a stock they own
only an idiot would deny that this board has been anything but filled with predictions of mnkd shooting past $50 when afrezza was approved, and then the same when a partner was announced, and then when it was released
wake up, teabag, wake up -- before you lose everything
from the Forbes article listed under 'headlines' for 2/27 right at this yahoo site...
" Bottom line, we still remain skeptical that the commercial potential of Afrezza is enough to warrant meaningful upside to valuation. Indeed, we estimate that Afrezza has to match the leading mealtime insulin in the world just to justify MannKind’s prevailing valuation."
it's amazing the challenging, indignant response a factual post receives on this message board from posters whose diligence is so shallow as to not even include the 'headlines' entries for a stock they own
jp morgan says afrezza would have to sell as well as the leading insulin in the world to justify its current market cap -- but in the first four weeks of it being available only 290 prescriptions have reportedly been written
that is not at all what seemed to be a consensus on this board
afrezza was supposed to explode on the scene as diabetics everywhere threw away their needles and lines formed outside doctors' offices everywhere
CES is the place to introduce new sku's to get max exposure
it's the big party, and mcz did not get to it with these products
yes, ipci has yielded the worldwide market in exchange for being able to manufacture the drug BUT only for Teva and only for Teva to sell in the U.S. -- the rest of the world now belongs to Teva whether or not ipci ever gets approval from the FDA
you know, if that is the new business model it doesn't sound any better than the old one
hate to say it but he used to hold 8.2% and is down to 6.4%
frankly, i suspect he has been involved in supplying shares to shorts
the better story is Woodford who has been adding much faster than mehiel has been dropping and, if i'm right about his involvement with shorts, that could be a sign that shorts are leaving
it means that ipci can ONLY provide product to Teva, and Teva can ONLY sell product from ipci in the U.S.
which means, Teva can get this drug from another supplier (or manufacturer in house) and sell anywhere else in the world
the agreement LIMITS ipci's revenues from this drug to U.S. sales only
end result -- ipci gave away any rights it might have had to the rest of the world to settle a lawsuit with Teva, and Teva could care less whether ipci ever provides it with drug for the U.S. or if anyone buys it, though they will make a credible effort to market it to meet the minimum performance clause
current quarter, next quarter, and full year 2015 loss estimates all have dropped substantially, including after the most recent earnings report
back in august, estimates were still positive -- then they went red, and now deeper into the red
if so, the next flagpole should easily take it deep into the 8's
and the more days it spends consolidating in this range, the more likely that is to occur
LL's testing is done in China, and they admitted to 60 Minutes that one of LL's "biggest sellers" was not CARB-2 compliant
what wasn't clear is whether that particular flooring had a CARB-2 California sticker on it, or if it was intended for other States
the report went on to say that the flooring going to other States was tested by 60 Minutes and found to exceed the CARB-2 standard by up to 13 times -- but that would still leave it within the legal limit in those States
unfortunately, everything about this company is now suspect which is why the SEC and DOJ are buzzing around, and why same store sales fell over 4%
chance of it ever seeing 70 again are extremely slim -- chances of dropping to and through 20 are exceedingly high
Lumber Liquidators disclosed in its 10K U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission filing that "in recent communications, the DOJ indicated that it is contemplating seeking criminal charges under the Lacey Act."
The Lacey Act is a U.S. conservation law that prohibits the trading in wildlife or plants that were illegally taken, possessed, transported, or sold. Lumber Liquidators said that the DOJ investigation pertained to the importation of certain of the company's wood flooring products.
Lumber Liquidators said that, at this time, it "does not have enough information to estimate a reasonably possible loss or range of loss that may result from actions by the DOJ as a result of its investigation."
imagine the size of the awards that juries will pass out when they see pictures of babies crawling around on those floors
and that doesn't even get to the fines imposed for illegal and environmentally damaging sourcing
how much will the lawsuits cost
they drove the giant of the industry, armstrong world, into bk years ago
and what credibility is left for the other 80% of products now that the world sees they were engaged in illegal and environmentally damaging sourcing
frankly, didn't even know about LL until watching 60 Minutes last night but soon as i heard how they were coming to dominate the wood flooring business, i started thinking competition wanted to knock them down
then when they talked about the super high margins and the stock soaring it was inevitable that shorts would be looking for dirt, and if they didn't find a tainted product they would have raised workers' pay and conditions, or found something -- but i think they might be in cahoots with Home Depot
anyhow, 60 Minutes never misses a chance to help bring down capitalism so i'm not surprised that they did not ask whether the non-CARB 2 flooring was simply shipped to California by mistake -- because it would have been legal in every other State
also, when 60 Minutes said some of the samples from other States showed they were as much as 13 times over the CARB-2 standard, that doesn't matter because even those would still be legal outside California
if in fact they never lose, they must now when to get out
so they must have already begun exiting and they will have to pick up the pace very soon because Woodford, BlackRock, and Goldman aren't waiting around
that's three big time strikes, and the pompom pumpers still don't understand that they are out
they yelled "50 dollars a share" next to each of those catalysts and have been 100% wrong, so now they claim success because they are closer to the 52 week high than the 52 week low -- ha, ha, ha, ha, he, he, he
even jp morgan now agrees with the few factfinders of this board in saying that afrezza would have to sell as well as the leading insulin in the world to justify its current market cap, which is why some of the more clever pompom pumpers have moved on to start hyping technosphere and unnamed products that are years away from ever seeing the light of day but which they want newbies to believe are worth billions -- ha, ha, ha
